Adara's Toffee Fudge Brownies
These brownies are dense and fudgy in the center and flaky on the outside. Absolutely amazing. These are my daughter's creation, and my all-time favorite brownie recipe. The photo here was taken after a night in the fridge smooshed under various leftovers. They actually "glisten and crumble" more when they are fresh from the oven. A different version of this can be found in another place on this blog, but this is the recipe the way my daughter makes it:
1/2 cup butter
8 oz. high quality dark chocolate (60 - 70%), chopped
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 large eggs (beat well after each egg)
3/4 cup flour (don't over-mix)
1 cup chopped toffee pieces
Preheat over to 350ºF. In a small saucepan, melt butter and chocolate over low heat. Remove from heat and whisk in sugar and salt. Pour into a cold bowl and add eggs one at a time, beating well after each egg. Carefully add flour and toffee and don't over-mix.
Bake in a buttered 8-inch square pan for about 45 minutes or until the edges pull away from the pan. Do not overcook! Cool before cutting.
